Our Vision

Our vision is clear...To Prepare for Rain

A story is told of two farmers that went to church every Sunday and prayed for rain.  Only one farmer went back and planted his crops and prepared for it.  Which farmer demonstrated more faith?

First Baptist Church has been called to prepare for rain.  We are actively seeking a bi-vocational Minister of Music/Youth so we can be prepared for rain.  We are preparing to start up our Children's Programs again...so we can be prepared for rain.  We are praying every day for guidance and direction so that we can be prepared for rain.

Join us as we await God's blessings and prepare for rain.


Our Mission

Our mission is simple.  Spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth.  

Matt 28:17-20
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
NIV
